International business focused MBA -- Edinburgh, Durham, Cranfield, Strathclyde


robull34h

Hi

I am an overseas student in need of advice from those familiar with these UK schools and MBA programmes. How would you compare these schools to each other? I want to go to a great school that has a great reputation with employers, particularly in Europe as I would like to work there after grad school.

key criteria: international focus, strong corporate relations and reputation, hands-on experiences/internships/field trips, and true campus feel

Can anyone comment and provide recommendations?

Of the four schools you mentioned, the two better choices are Cranfield and Strathclyde. these are good ranked school(in FT 25 and 41). Cranfield has appears in this ranking for more then 3 years, hence it is probably better recognized by recruiters. strathclyde has a better value for money rank, but Cranfield is higher in the career progress ranking. you should of course not only go by the rankings in FT - check the other big names. Cranfield also seems to have a more international faculty and board.

i have no personal experience with thous schools, so you should also try to connect alumni and ask some questions about the mba experience there.

Cranfield is a good school not only because of its brand but also because it cares about its students and has good professors.

The school is playing an active role in lobbying against certain policies of the UK govt that will harm students.

Also recently one of their professors, Professor Erkko Autio?s paper on ?Social capital, knowledge acquisition, and knowledge exploitation in young technology-based firms? was awarded "Paper of the Decade" by the American Marketing Association

I agree with Sultan of Swing - in all of the major MBA rankings, Cranfield is head and shoulders above the other schools you're considering.
